Metso Tandem rotary car dumper
The delivery includes two complete Dumper Barrel assemblies, a complete Hopper System with Grizzlies, a Unit Train Positioner Operation, and installation. The order has been booked in Metso’s 2020 Q2 orders received.
“We have a long-standing business partnership with Metso. We selected them for this project because of their technical expertise and for providing the best long-term value for our company,” says Larry Gelo, Director of Equipment Design, CSX.
Thanks to its innovative design, the new dumper system to be delivered to CSX will not only allow for the rotary dumping of loaded railroad cars but also the unloading of bottom dump cars. Overall efficiency of the dumping operation will be improved via the use of NolanTM Car movers that are mounted on the dumper barrels to spot the loaded cars as well as eject the empty cars.
“We are very pleased about this order. As the leading supplier of rail-based freight transportation in North America, CSX is a very important customer to Metso. We have provided them equipment, parts, and services throughout their network in the USA. The new dumper system to be delivered to Maryland will enable CSX to significantly improve the overall efficiency of their dumping operation,” explains Bob Kaib, Vice President, Bulk Technologies at Metso.
